Viaducto de la polvorilla, San Antonio de los Cobres
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
One of the highest viaducts in the world and a highlight of the "Train to the Clouds" rail tour, Viaducto de la polvorilla stretches across the valley at 223 m (732 ft) long, reaching a maximum height of 63 m (207 ft). The bridge's dark grey steel stands out against the rocky desert foreground. Several triangle shaped columns support the bridge, filled with support beams in a web like pattern. The bridge is not exclusive to the train tour-- hiking along the Toro River through the mountains provides a more adventurous route. Using our international travel planner, San Antonio de los Cobres attractions like Viaducto de la polvorilla can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
